Gianaris pushes his clean-air bill

Queens Campaigner wrote about how Senator Gianaris commemorated Earth Day this year.

In celebration of Earth Day last week, state Sen. Michael Gianaris (D-Astoria) touted the pro-environment legislation he has recently introduced that would reduce emissions and crack down on polluters.

“It’s been a priority of mine from the first day I was elected to the [state] Assembly,” Gianaris said.

The senator said that since his district is adjacent to the Con Edison Astoria Complex, on 20th Avenue between Shore Boulevard and 31st Street in Astoria and contains the Ravenswood Power Plant in Astoria, air quality has always been a major concern.
